Carraig defeated in County Junior Football League

County Junior A Football League Carraig na bhFear 1-12 Dromtariffe 3-12 On Sunday morning last, Carraig hosted Dromtariffe in the third round of games in the Cork County Junior Football League. This was a game that Carraig were chasing from the start, after the concession of two goals in the first 13 minutes of the game. Carraig were short a number of U21 players after their exertions from the previous day, but this gave an opportunity for a number of fringe players. Carraig did fight back into the game, with promininent play from Paul O Keeffe and the evergreen Shane Horgan i lar na bpairce. The half time score was Dromtariffe 2-07, Carraig 0-07. Dromtariffe managed to keep Carraig at arms length throughout the second half, as Carraig tried to reel them in. With Carraig chasing the game, Dromtariife sat deep and hit quickly on the counter, and from this they engineered their third goal with a quarter of the game left. There was no way back for Carraig, eventhough C O’Reilly did dispatch a penalty in the last three minutes. A worthwhile work out for the team a week away from Championship, but a few creases to be ironed out as well.

Goals Prove decisive as Cobh shatter Carraig’s Title Dreams

Goals Prove decisive as Cobh shatter Carraig’s Title Dreams Cobh 3-08 Carraig na bhFear 0-10   At a warm and sunny Carraigtwohill pitch, last Saturday, the Carraig na bhFear U21 footballers were denied another East Cork title by a more balanced and more incisive Cobh team. This was a game that Carraig might have a few regrets about, possibly due to missed opportunities at the start of both halves. Goal chances were missed at these times and the course of the game may have been altered. But, Cobh did take their chances and must be commended on a having their homework done in snuffing out Carraig’s prime forwards, namely O Crowley and P Sheehan. Carraig had a great goal chance within 40 seconds of the commencement of the game, P Sheehan hitting the butt of the post after being put through by Crowley. It would have been the tonic start, but instead Cobh gained a foothold in midfield and scored two quickfire points in the first five minutes. Carraig replied with their first score, Crowely stroking over a classy free from distance. Cobh added another point from play, but then Carraig had a good period of dominance. S Farrell worked hard on the wing, B Murphy and J Aherne started to dominate in midfield and O Crowley was starting the pull the strings on the “forty”. Carraig scored the next 3 points, a fine effort from play from Murphy, O Crowley from a free after he was fouled himself and then Crowley again with a determind effort from play. Carraig were a point up 0-4 to 0-3 after 20 mins. But Cobh struck back with an incisive run...

Match Reports 30th April

Carraig na bhFear 2-12 Muintir Bhaire 1-08. Carraig na bhFear recorded their second win of the Cork County Junior A Football League, after a good honest display against Muintir Bhaire, on Saturday April 21 st in Carraig na bhFear. The story of this game was defined in the joint performance of Oisin Crowley and Paul Murphy, both players in the full forward line who managed to score all of Carraig’s scores. Carraig started with a good tempo and were quick to get on the scoresheet. Within the first 15 minutes, Crowley and Murphy had both goaled after good approach work from midfield. Both finishes were clinical and left Carraig in front at half time, Carraig 2-06 Muintir Bhaire 0-04. Carraig did not lessen their grip on the game in the second half. S Casey was solid at full back and the half back line of Cronin, Dorgan and Sweeney defended quite well. M Aherne and S Horgan fielded well at midfield and this platform kept a constant flow of possession heading in the direction of the “Terrible Twins”. Crowely added three more minors from frees, whilst Murphy, lena chiatog, scored three from play. Munitir Bhaire did rally and managed a good goal with ten minutes left. But Carraig finished the game well and won by a margin of seven points. Onwards and upwards for the group, with the first round of the Football Championship only two weeks away. Team: C Hayes, T Sheehan, S Casey, C Cooney, C Cronin, A Dorgan, T Neally, M Aherne, S Horgan, J Forde, P O’Keeffe, B Murphy, P Murphy, O Crowley, J Forde. Subs: D Sweeney for Neally.
